Load an XML File from the File System into Textml with ASP.NET

I'm building an internal application that needs to load an XML file from the file system into a specific repository path in Textml Server. Here's the method I used within a ContentServer class I created.

The references to various this properties are set in the same class where I get the values from a configuration file for the staging and production servers.
public bool Publish(string fileUri)
ArrayList documents = new ArrayList(1);
IxiaClientServices IxiaCS = new IxiaClientServices();
IxiaServerServices IxiaSS = IxiaCS.ConnectServer(this.ContextServer);
IxiaDocBaseServices IxiaDS = IxiaSS.ConnectDocBase(this.ContextContainer);
IxiaDocumentServices ds = IxiaDS.DocumentServices;
IxiaDocument document = IxiaDocument.getInstance();
FileInfo file = new FileInfo(fileUri);

document.Name = file.Name;
document.MimeType = "text/xml";
document.Collection = this.ContextAdditionalName;
document.Content = IxiaDocument.MakeBinaryContent(file.FullName);

IxiaTextmlServerError [] err = ds.SetDocuments(documents,
(int)IxiaDocumentServices.TextmlSetDocuments.TextmlAddDocument |
(int)IxiaDocumentServices.TextmlSetDocuments.TextmlReplaceDocument |

// If there is more than one item, and that first item is
// not null or empty, return false.
if (err.Length > 1 && !String.IsNullOrEmpty(err[0].ToString()))
// TODO: Log each in the EventViewer
return false;
else return true;
catch (Exception ex)
// TODO: Log in the EventViewer
return false;

I need to do the same into MarkLogic so I'll post that snippet here as soon as it's done.
